As a leader, you must experiment with what you learn. This is a critical component to credible practice.
“Realize that it is not how you feel that determines how you act; rather it is how you act that determines how you feel. –William James (1842-1910)
Study and application build credibility into your practice as a leader. And through the act of practice you build your confidence. Courageously entering introspection opens your learning to find a form in which to be shared externally. As you share – practice openly – you create energy for others. As you continue to study, you begin to do so to reenergize internally.
To be diligent means to study. To study intently and purposefully requires commitment.
“Concerning all acts of initiative … there is one elementary truth … that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Study enhances practice and practice enhances you. There is a bounty available through commitment. This bounty is both internal and external. The external destination is reached via the internal route. Credibility is achieved only by this route.
We need your confident leadership.
